Zytoprotec Zytoprotec is developing drugs using a novel therapeutic approach – cytoprotection.

Zytoprotec’s lead product, PD-protec®, is being developed to improve the survival of patients on peritoneal dialysis, a treatment for kidney failure.

PD-protec® has shown safety and promising efficacy effects in a Phase I/II trial. A randomized, blinded, multicenter Phase II trial has commenced at the end of Q2 2014.

Worldwide, 2.7 million patients annually receive dialysis treatment. About 11 percent of these patients are treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD).

Cytoprotective PD solutions have the potential to significantly improve the outcomes of PD treatment and consequently to increase the share of PD within the overall dialysis market.
